Tel-Tru Manufacturing Company

We manufacture thermometers - but we sell service, reliability, product quality and performance.

➤ QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE FEATURES:


★ CASE AND BEZEL ★ LENS
• 304 stainless steel standard • Extra heavy duty instrument glass standard
• 316 stainless steel optional • Shatterproof glass, tempered glass, and plastics
• All external parts corrosion resistant to most optional
chemicals
• Parts designed for maximum strength to meet
requirements of heavy duty industrial applications
• Manufactured with precision tooling on modern ★ POINTER
OSHA approved stamping equipment
• Black painted aluminum
• Statistical Process Control QA methods used to • Balanced and precisely assembled to bimetal coil stem
assure component quality and process consistency
• Polished finish identifies Tel-Tru quality • Direct transfer of coil movement to temperature
displayed on dial
• Cases may be silicone filled for additional
dampening of extreme vibration, or to assure
consistent performance in low process
temperature/high environmental humidity
applications

★ DATE STAMPING
• Available for QA tracking of industrial
thermometers

★ EXTERNAL RESET
• Calibration adjustment using an Allen wrench
discourages inadvertent tampering
★ HERMETIC SEAL
• Stainless steel pinion is sealed with a silicone
“O” ring to maintain integrity of hermetic seal
• Case/Bezel assembly is a precision interference fit • Pinion works with gear teeth cut and formed in dial
• Silicone gasket provides dustproof and leakproof seal • Models without reset are available
• Welded construction-Unique 360º TIG
weld joins case, stem and threaded connection ★ DIAL
• Testing conforms with ASME B40.3 procedures • True anti-parallax dial on 3", 4"' 5" models
• Graduations on dial ring are on the same plane as
the pointer tip minimizing reading error
• Concave design of dial ring enhances readability
★ THREADED CONNECTION • White appearing .032" anodized aluminum
• 304 stainless steel standard • Graduations for each temperature range are
• 316 stainless steel optional calculated to match deflection data of bimetallic
material
• Precision manufactured on Tel-Tru CNC machines • Large easy to read black numerals and
• Statistical Process Control QA methods used to graduations are printed on precision pad

★ BIMETAL BUSHING ★ QUALITY SYSTEM


• Pressed into groove on stem • ISO 9000 comparable
• Centers coil in stem • Assures that all materials, methods and processes
• 302 stainless steel stem wire goes through meet Tel-Tru’s highest standards for form, fit,
center of bushing connecting bimetal element and function
to pointer, minimizes coil touching tube wall • Statistical Process Control QA methods used
• Centering bearings are used at regular intervals to assure component quality and process
on long stem thermometers consistency
• Calibration lab for NIST traceable verification of all
standard thermometers and measuring instruments
★ TEMPERATURE RANGES used in manufacturing process
• 20 Standard Fahrenheit ranges from -100° to 1000°
• 20 Standard Celsius ranges from -75° to 550°
• 13 Standard Dual scale ranges
• Availability of over 120 ranges developed, may vary
by dial size

★ OVER TEMPERATURE LIMITS


• Up to 250°F 100% ★ IMMERSION:
• 250° F to 550°F
50% • Groove around stem shows minimum immersion
• 550° F to 1000°F
800°F for continuous use, point on each thermometer
intermittent use over 800°F • For most accurate reading sensitive portion of stem
must be completely immersed

★ STEM
• 304 Stainless steel tubing is welded/drawn
and fabricated to exacting tolerances
• 316 stainless steel optional
• Standard stem diameter is .250" (6.35mm) –
options include .375" (9.52mm), .236" (6mm)
and .315" (8mm)
• Stem lengths available from 2 ⁄ " to 120"
